"There are no complications from the surgery", the center said in a released statement.

Rev. Tony Lowden, Carter's pastor, said the former president was hospitalized Monday after "a rough day".

Carter, 95, was admitted to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta on Monday, with an operation scheduled for Tuesday morning, according to a statement from The Carter Center. It was the second time Carter has taken a fall recently.

Carter said earlier this year he hoped "there's an age limit" to holding the highest elected office in the United States.

The first fall, in the spring, required hip replacement surgery.

None of that stopped Carter from his long-standing commitments to Habitat for Humanity.

In 2015, Carter announced that doctors had discovered a form of melanoma that spread to his brain.

Nearly 40 years after he left office, the former Democratic president still continues to teach at a Sunday school on a twice-monthly basis at Maranatha Baptist Church in his small hometown of Plains, in southwest Georgia. Four months later, he was cancer-free. Except I was going to miss my family, and miss the work at The Carter Center and miss teaching your Sunday school service sometimes and so forth.

Since then, Carter said he's been "absolutely confident" in the Christian idea of life after death, and hasn't anxious about his own death. AP medical writer Lauran Neergaard contributed from Washington.
